After traveling to many international film festivals and winning acclaims, Victor Banerjee starrer ‘The Answer’ that is set to release theatrically in India, has found support at home ground from none other than superstar Rajinikanth.
The film is based on the true story of an American, James Donald Walters (played by Leonidas Gulaptis) later christened as Swami Kriyananda and his encounter with spiritual master Paramhansa Yogananda in California, which resulted in his devotion to the guru and his teachings.
Thalaiva, Rajinikanth who recently saw the film in Chennai seemed to be happy with the makers for making an important film and spreading the message of spiritualism through the said film.
“The film is a moving tale of a guru-shishya relationship. Picturised beautifully, it will surely resonate with the followers of Guru Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda.” He said.
Not many know that the superstar who has a legendary fan following and is known to be a guru for many actors has been following Mahavatar Babaji, Paramhansa Yogananda and has been practising Kriya Yoga for a long time.
“Rajini sir is so unassuming – as he is known to be. The way he readily agreed to see the film shows his stature not only as an ultimate superstar but also as a profound human being. We are very happy that we could show him the film”, said Madhureeta Anand, who is the Worldwide Business Consultant on the film.
‘The Answer’ backed by Pia Singh of DLF, directed by Pavan Kaul, distributed by Panorama Studios Distribution LLP will release on 31st August in cinemas across India.
